One of history's most published architectural treatises, this Renaissance volume solidified the architectural canon of the past five centuries. In these pages, the distinguished architect known as Vignola identified the five orders — Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite — and illustrated them in full-page elevational detail.Vignola's engravings have been copied countless times since their original publication in 1562. The clear images with brief captions constitute a practical rather than theoretical work, offering even lay readers a system of tools that provide accurate proportions. An essential reference for professional architects, this book has guided generations of architects, including those who rebuilt London after the Fire of 1664. This new edition features an Introduction by architectural historian David Watkin.

The information is instructive. However, it is a "facsimile" edition, so the reader must endure the old style type and out-of-focus illustrations and numerals. It would have been a major effort to re-cast the type-set and line-drawings. But, once the reader adjusts to the old style, it remains informative.

Excellent

You need to appreciate antique writing... it's somewhat obscure to a laymen like me, but it brings the authenticity of the architectural design canons of the time.

So far, I have only skimmed this book but found it interesting. Looking forward to reading it from cover-to-cover when time permits!

Dr Branko Mitrovic translates to English the most? published architectural treatise in history. There contains within his book, his typical attention to detail thereby decreasing error and misinterpretaion in the translation.
Beautifully bound and presented, this easy to read 'reference' is uncluttered but comprehensive. It is a book that for accurate proportioning systems alone is essential on any architects' shelf. There no longer needs to be any guessing where classical geometries are concerned. The illustrations are full page elevational detail....very easy to browse and understand.
Like a thesaurus for the poet, this fundamental system of tools is recommended for any architect, whatever their bent.
Thank you
